Dog Reactive Classes & Workshops

Dog Reactive Workshop

Let’s face it, some dogs struggle when they see another dog, a particular person or thing. Their reactivity can make walking your pup impossible – but it doesn’t have to be! Join us for our Dog Reactivity Workshop to learn strategies, tactics, and management devices to help you and your dog work through their problem behavior.

“This is exactly what we needed; nice people, different dogs, and the guidance to know what to do. Thank you, Marcy.”

“I wasn’t able to walk my dog before Marcy’s workshop. Now we walk every day and never have any issues with dogs!”

How it works

Our first session discusses goals and strategies needed to get our dogs through their reactivity. We then teach them a few key behaviors and begin practicing. After the initial 2-hour session, we re-convene the following week to review, practice, and add dogs to the equation.

Once you’ve attended the first 2 sessions, you and your dog are encouraged to participate as alumni to continue practicing and perfecting the behaviors and help your pup loose their reactivity altogether.

All workshops take place at La Plata County Humane Society. Cost – $120 and includes alumni sessions!

Class schedule

New StudentsWe have Dog Reactive Workshops for new students scheduled for:

  • April 16th and 23rd, 5pm

Returning StudentsWorking your pup through their reactivity is a lot like speaking a new language; if you don’t practice and use it, you tend to lose it. Dogs need the practice to do well and to realize that doing well is expected 24/7. Please join us for these alumni practice sessions:

  • April 30th, 5pm BMX Park (behind Big5 plaza on River trail)
  • May 21st, 5pm 2nd & 12th (1 block up from Buckley Park)

Due to the nature of this class, we will already be working 6+feet from each other. Much of our workshop takes place outside. We ask everyone to please wear a mask. When we work away from the humane society (alumni sessions) we again follow these procedures and are outside the entire time. Please use any additional precautions you feel are necessary.
